    Jasper Renshaw, Viscount Vale, has a problem: he needs to produce an heir. All he wants is to find a lady who will put up with him long enough to wed so he can retreat to his life of debauchery - a life that keeps the haunting memories of his past at bay. Knowing Jasper’s dilemma, Melisande Fleming seizes her fate and volunteers to marry him. Soon Jasper is entranced by his wife - prim and proper by day, wanton by night.

    To escape her cruel stepfather, seamstress Alexandra Cogsworth envisioned sailing far from England…though not as a captive aboard a pirate’s ship. Pirate captain Nathaniel Kent’s strategy for exacting revenge on his coldhearted father involved taking a valuable hostage…not a seamstress he mistakenly thinks is his half sister. Yet fate has designs of its own, landing them both on board the Royal Vengeance. At sea, Nathaniel intercepts and plunders his father’s ships, all the while tormented by his illicit hunger for the tempting prisoner he thinks is his blood relation.

    Would you try another book from Brenda Novak and/or Alison Larkin?

    No, with a plot like that NOPE. Every time I listen I get angry and irritated. First time in all my readings and listenings I wanted to kill the heroine. Alexandra is the most annoying, aggravating, stupid and irritating female heroine I've ever read about. Impossible this book was reviewed before publishing. How could someone write a book with a 23-chapter of beating, fighting, bad luck for the main characters, etc... Every read you think it will get better, it got worse. I had to stop listening because every time I listen I got upset. It was chapter and chapter of irritation. I can't finish this book so therefore will avoid this author. Grrrrr......


    What could Brenda Novak have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Take out some of the agony, pain and stop making the characters look stupid and foolish.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Alison Larkin?

    She could have done a better job. Don't think so!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No did not love this book and did not see any redeeming qualities.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has me super UPSET!

    Of all the dukes in England, Jered Marcus Benton, the Duke of Bradford, was the wealthiest, most handsome — and most arrogant. And of all London’s ladies, he wanted the tender obedience of only one — Caroline Richmond. She was a ravishing beauty from Boston, with a mysterious past and a fiery spirit. Drawn to the powerful duke, undeterred by his presumptuous airs, Caroline was determined to win his lasting love.

    An arrogant duke does the unthinkable - he falls in love with his mistress.... She raced onto the green, desperate to stop a duel. In the mêlée, Jocelyn Dudley, Duke of Tresham, was shot. To his astonishment, Tresham found himself hiring the servant as his nurse. Jane Ingleby was far too bold for her own good. Her blue eyes were the sort a man could drown in - were it not for her impudence. She questioned his every move, breached his secrets, touched his soul. When he offered to set her up in his London town house, love was the last thing on his mind.

    A decade ago, the Marquess of Bourne was cast from society with nothing but his title. Now a partner in London's most exclusive gaming hell, the cold, ruthless Bourne will do whatever it takes to regain his inheritance - including marrying perfect, proper Lady Penelope Marbury. A broken engagement and years of disappointing courtships have left Penelope with little interest in a quiet, comfortable marriage, and a longing for something more. How lucky that her new husband has access to an unexplored world of pleasures.

So when Edward Ailsbury, the new Earl of Heyward, rescues her with unmatched civility from the advances of a scoundrel, Angeline thinks that she has found her true love.

    What disappointed you about The Secret Mistress?

    Story don't match the title. Too much of nothing. Waiting for a story did not get any. Foolish characters. Just plain annoying.


    What could Mary Balogh have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The book should have match the title. The male character should of been older. Stop characterising the thoughts and put in more interaction.


    Have you listened to any of Anne Flosnik’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Flosnik try her best. But you can also tell by her narration she was disappointed. For example she gives every character a voice. However with this one she seems like she was forgetting and just read through. She tried her best though.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger and disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    I need to return this disappointed audiobook

Enter beautiful Thea Martin - a duke's headstrong, errant daughter and society's most brilliant matchmaker. Years ago, she and Lyon were inseparable, until he disappeared from her life without a word. Now she is charged with finding Lyon's bride - a woman he cannot love for a man Thea could love too well.
